Live Music in Memphis

Blues // Soul // Rock 'n' Roll

And that's just the beginning...

Maybe it’s the rhythm of the mighty Mississippi River. Or the tangy blend of Southern hospitality and gritty determination. Or the very talented people who have called our city home—Elvis, B.B. King, Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Justin Timberlake—whatever the reason, when it comes to music, there’s simply no place like Memphis.

If Memphis music moves you, how will you feel at its source?

What's New on the Memphis Music Scene

What does Sam & Dave’s “Soul Man” and “Hold On, I’m Coming,” Mariah Carey’s “Dreamlover” and Will Smith’s “Get Jiggy Wit It” have in common? David Porter. With over 1,700 songwriter and composer credits, his is a household name in the music industry.
As staff songwriter for Stax Recording Studio from 1965 – 1974, Porter wrote hit after hit for talent such as Aretha Franklin, Isaac Hayes, Carla Thomas and Sam & Dave. Later, teaming up with Isaac Hayes, this duo composed 200 songs during the Stax era.
Today, instead of slowing down, David Porter has opened his own recording studio – Made in Memphis Entertainment – keeping Memphis on the map as a hot spot for great music. The newly-opened studio is in place and staffed with songwriters and artists. The facility has three recording studios and is available to hire for outside projects. Click here for directions.
